About

We're Back!

Yes, a year ago we attempted to raise a LOT of money to build HappiJar, but we failed. But we didn't let this stop us though. We found a way. We believed in this project and we found a way.

So like I said, we built it anyway and guess what? You loved it. Apple loved it - they rated No.3 best new social networks in week 2. Cool huh?

HappiJar, the happiness and gratitude phone app has been in the App Store for 3 months and the response so far has been really promising :) There have been 5,000 happimoments shared! So just imagine what we all can do if we were able to build an Android version! 

We always intended to build an Android app... but since you wanted this to happen a lot quicker than we could afford to; we decided to ask you for some help to do it.

What is HappiJar?

Well if you have an iOS device, or know a kind person who has, then you can download it for FREE in the App Store! Just click on the banner below. Use it, rate it, share it please! 

HappiJar was designed to look and feel like a real happy jar and to be your 'favourite mobile app' for STORING your happy moments on. Just the ones that make you smile, laugh and feel all warm and fuzzy inside. From the app you can then easily connect with and SHARE the moments with your family and friends. Thus helping each other smile and appreciate the little things in life which make us all happy. Also if you ever need a small happiness boost or some daily inspiration, then you SHAKE your HappiJar app and a random one flies out to make you smile. It is all that simple.

So Why the Money?

What do we need the money for? The cost to create the Android version is £4,000. We have already managed to self fund the iOS version and saved enough money away to bring down our funding target to £3,000. £500 will go towards Kickstarter fees and prizes, the remaining £2,500 will be used to build the Android app.

If you haven't got an iOS device or a friend with one to download our app, then check out these brief 'How to Videos' on what HappiJar looks like in the real world.

The Team

All of our team works part-time to bring you this cool app and provide a platform for artists to display their work as HappiButtons. Please connect with them on Twitter and feel free to connect with them on HappiJar too. We're always looking for positive thoughts and happi moments to inspire us.

Thank you all so much :)

Risks and challenges

A large portion of the risks have already been ironed out during the development of the iOS app. Our team is TIGHT and already delivering on a regular basis.

The app will require repagination for the Andriod version PLUS we intend to roll out some cool new features on the Android version only. So there will be artist deadlines and a small amount of alpha testing. We are well used to this process and confident that we will deliver on time - as we always do.

Apart from our developer, you are witness to a team of amateurs who raised their game and turned professional app designers. Our commitment and enthusiasm has gotten us this far and it will take us to our end goal and way beyond. You can trust that we going to make you all very Happi indeed ;)
